We present results on the characterization and development of a printable recipe and FDM procedure for sodium caseinate. The aim of our study was not only to characterize and explore 3D printing of sodium caseinate suspensions, but also investigate the feasibility to include a second phase within the protein matrix. We present two methods that were used to introduce particles and an oil-phase into the caseinate matrix. It was demonstrated feasible to prepare protein-rich objects with specific spatial distributions of particles or fat droplets.

Ever wonder what people will be eating 35 years from now? Experts say the diet of 2050 will revolve less around meat and more around bugs. What’s more? NASA -inspired superfood bars, 3D printed custom-designed menus and plenty of kale. Continue reading “Ever wonder what people will be eating 35 years from now?”
3D printing could one day be as valuable to food manufacturers as the internet and help them reduce costs and energy and save production time, according to an expert in the field. Continue reading “3D Printing Could Be as Valuable as Internet to Food Manufacturers”
We’re back again with another 3Ders Monday Warm-up, a weekly roundup of some of the biggest 3D printing trends, projects, products or ideas, in an easy-to-read format to help ease you into the busy workweek to come.
Last week, 3D Systems officially opened their new culinary innovation centre, the 3DS Culinary Lab, a learning, collaboration and exploration space, furnished with the ChefJet Pro 3D food printer, for leading chefs, artisans and mixologists to experiment with and push the boundaries of 3D printed food. This got me particularly excited about 3D printed food options, uses, and the rapidly expanding range of 3D food printers on the market today.

Cookie cutters are so yesterday. Tomorrow’s biscuits will have 3D forms. A German start-up company has figured out a way to shape food with a 3D printer, and has developed printable food mixtures for a variety of printing processes.
Focusing on natural foods and funded to the tune of 40,000 euros (Bt1.6 million) by the crowd funding platform Kickstarter, Print2Taste’s machine, the Bocusini, is the world’s first plug & play 3D food printer and will cost in the region of 900 euros. Continue reading “New 3D food printers convert marzipan into shapely eatables (Video)”
Cambridge UK based design studio and innovation lab Dovetailed has developed a 3D printer that can make edible fruit. By combining individual liquid droplets with different flavours into a desired shape, it allows the creation of interesting bespoke fruits in a matter of seconds. It is aimed at chefs, foodies and anyone interested in making creative dining experiences. Continue reading “UK-based Innovation Lab Designs 3D Food Printer for Customised Taste, Colour, Texture”
